After opening the flood gaces

the Chinese reds abandoned
their Hwachon stronghold.
Ignoring the threat of floods,

the southwest side of the reser

It Happened at NU
The bell rang and the class
The instructor took his place
at the head of the class and
took roll. Then, looking up as
he was going to lecture about,
asked the class if anyone had
heard the eight o clock news
broadcast before they had left.
No one had.
Then the instructor let loose.
The "United States has declared
war on Russia."'
The entire classroom was si
lent. Everyone looked at each
other. Could it be true?
Seeing the students so con
cerned over his statement, the
instructor retaliated, "Stalin
criticized Margaret Truman."

initiation fees are being charged
by 24 honoraries and professional
groups on the Nebraska campus.
But according to Sharon Fritz
ler, of the student activities com
mittee conducting the queries,
the above comment was by no
means typical of the 13 replies
received from the national offices
which received large portions of
the high fees.
Some Letters Evasive
Miss Fritzler stated that eight
of the return letters were "fav
orable, while five were rather
evasive and unfavorable."
She added that those "favor
able" ones were quite complete
and helpful in citing the "full
The Council in its letters to tne
national office of the 13 groups
asked for a precise report of the
amount of funds that those
offices received. Such informa
tion as the amount of funds des
tined for the individuals own
welfare and the local chapter's
'For Student Welfare'
Miss Fritzler stated that the
letters were not sent in "merely
an investigative, curious move,
but in an effort to see that the
students' welfare was not en
dangered." "While it is not within the
power of the Student Council to
! alter anV Imitation fee payment
I to tne national offices, the Coun
cil reserves the right to deny the
organization on this campus ro
any honorary which it believes
charges an exorbitant fee," added
Letters also have been sent to
the local chapters asking for a
formal report on amounts charge
for dues and fees. Also the letters
asked for "a report of benefits re
ceived in return for the fees.
The letter stated, "TMe atten
tion of the Student Council hs
recently been focused upon the
various honoraries, scholastic,
professional and otherwise, which
exist upon the campus. From
University students have come
complaints that many honoraries
fail to state the cost of member
ship at the time they ask pro
spective members to join."
Therefore, the letter asked that
sample copy of the letter to pro
spective plodces state the costi
of membership due May 7.
Miss Fritzler pointed out that
those groups which received the
largest portions of the initiation
fees were the most uncooperative
in their letters of reply.
One letter said, "I am a bit sur
prised that your Student Council
would ask each fraternity to re
port to you as to what they do
with the money paid into the
national treasury. It would seem
that in a democracy that the stu
dent representatives of the var
ious chapters would have the
right to make their own disposi
tion of the expenditures of these
A "more favorable" letter read,
"I admire your interest in stu
dent welfare and wish you suc
cess in all of the objectives of
your Student Council. If our
office may cooperate fur.lier nt
any time, we sincerely wish to
national fee is used.
In contrast, another group
charging one of the highest nat-
ional fees replied with relative
Indifference to the Council ques
tioning. In the letter, the group' secre
tary said, ". . .1 Inclose a booklet
which explains the difference
.between honorary professional
and social fraternities, which you
may find of some Interest."
